Share your favorite or least favorite DHS Memory?

School plays, newspaper staff, and AP Biology rate pretty high. I got my start as a cartoonist while on newspaper staff. That's been a pretty great skillset to develop.

What did you do right after high school?

Celebrated not being in high school.
I worked at Lagoon, went to Weber State until I realized that it was not getting me where I wanted to go.
I served a mission in Washington DC South, Spanish Speaking and a year or so after coming home finally went off to an animation program in Canada.
My life pretty much started when I went to art school.

High points of your life since high school?

I have lived in a lot of cool places, done a lot of cool things, and met a ton of cool people.

Have you met any famous or interesting people?

Everyone is interesting if you know how to talk to them.

Travel Much? What's the farthest you've been from home (Kaysville)? And, where is your favorite place to go? Give us your best travel tip.

Flew around the world once.

Besides work and family, what occupies your time? What do you enjoy doing?

I draw for work, for additional income...and to relax I draw. It's a problem.

It's been 20 years since we've all been together. What have you learned over the years? Do you have any advice or words of wisdom to share?

Say "YES" to things.
The outrage mob is *always* wrong.
Forget politics. Concentrate on your principles.
Life is too short to not have a Maine Coon.
If you don't ask, the answer is no.
Go for a walk in the morning.
Tell people you love them.
Get the good chocolate.
Learn how to take cold showers.
Drawing is a skill...not something special people were smacked over the head with by the talent fairy.
This too shall pass.
There are very few things you can not learn how to do by watching YouTube.
